The Team Roles questionnaire analyzes how the participant favors various team roles. It is aimed at the diagnostics of employees who are a part of permanent or project teams. It can be used to gain the profile of individual team members or the whole team.
Based on the same concept as the Multifactor Personality Profile, this questionnaire works with the assumption that each team member assumes multiple roles and works within their combinations. At the same time, these roles may not agree with the employee’s personality profile. While personality characteristics are more permanent and less susceptible to external influence, team roles are only assumed in the context of each team, its needs, and the requirements of the outside world. Whether or not these team roles are in accordance with one’s personality profile is a crucial factor for the degree of comfort we experience when acting them out. In order to facilitate understanding, our questionnaire uses mostly the same terminology of basic team roles as the well-known Belbin’s Team Role Test.
Aside from an easy-to-read chart, the output of our questionnaire offers a text section where the team roles are ranked by preference. The three most preferred roles are described in detail, and their advantages and potential risks are analyzed. If administered with the Multifactor Personality Profile, it also provides a comparison of each member’s personality and team profile. It identifies in which areas rapid development can be expected and in which it is less likely.

We recommend administering the Team Roles questionnaire together with the Multifactor Personality Profile.
